    The training course comprises one day’s duration, starting from 2pm and running until 9pm. Expect at least 3 hours on the trail during darkness.

    Utilising your existing mountain bike leadership experience and knowledge, this course focuses particularly on safe and effective leadership skills used during dark conditions including those of communication, motivation, organisation and decision making coupled with detailed route planning and navigation.  It expands on the development and implementation of robust Emergency Action and Late Back Procedures.

    The course also covers additional risk factors when leading in the dark and at night, environmental and social responsibilities, impacts on riders of being active at night, lighting with battery theory and additional equipment, reflective clothing and highway factors comprising legal lighting requirements and managing groups on the road in the dark.

    Note that this course is not an introduction to night riding and expects an existing level of personal confidence and competence at riding at night.
